In a land far far away we caught up with Co-Creators & Executive Producers of Once Upon a Time and got a sneak peek of season 6! #ABCTVEvent #OnceUponATime

.****Disney provided an all-expense paid trip for me to cover this great event ****

I know you all have to be excited for the season 6 premiere of Once Upon a Time. I know I am, and so is my mother and my niece. This generationally loved show is a must watch for fairy tale fans. My mother loves this show so much, I know not to call when it is on, because she will just rush me off the phone because "her show is on!" She has to watch it right when it airs, and can not miss a minute. I am sure she is not the only one, Once Upon a Time fans are devoted, and loyal, and can't wait for the "The Savior" season six premiere, which is tonight Sunday, September 25 at 8:00/9:00 p.m. EDT.

I was very fortunate to have an early sneak peek of the season six premiere before it aired! There was so much going on in this episode, there were surprises, and answers to many questions. You will not be disappointed. Sorry to be a bit vague about what I saw, if I tell you more it will be a spoiler, you will just have to be sure to watch the Once Upon a Time premiere episode that airs tonight. But, I have included some exclusive images from this episode throughout this post, to give you a little bit of a peek!

While in LA we got a chance to chat with the co-creators and executive producers of Once Upon a Time, Edward Kitsis  & Adam Horowitz. These guys came up with the idea for this show in 2002 in Edward's apartment and they are still just as passionate about this show now as they were in the very beginning.

What can we expect for season six? According to Edward Kitsis: "There’s a lot of romance you’re going to see, the first few episodes have a lot of that romance in them". Adam Horowitz says "this season they will be exploring the Land of Untold Stories... We are exploring a Savior mythology this season."

What are the other characters we can expect to see this season? The guys shared the astounding list of characters, including: The Count of Monte Cristo, Captain Nemo, Cinderella, Aladdin, Jasmine, Jafar, The Evil Stepsisters, and The Wicked Stepmother. There will also be more of Jiminy, Elroy, and the Dwarves. Wow! What an amazing character line up, we have so much to look forward to.  I am especially looking forward to seeing Captain Nemo, now that is going to be a great story line, I have always been a huge 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea fan. There is just something about a diving adventure that pulls me in! 

How much does the role of social media play in the show? The guys agreed that if they would listen to everyone, Robin would be alive, and dead. Regina would be with Daniel. The Huntsman would be alive and dead. Edward Kitsis, stated “You have to stay true to it and sometimes you really fail, and sometimes you really succeed, but at the end of the day and the show is over, I think the two of us want to look back and say, we did what we wanted" "We love the fans and we love their thoughts" He also said..."We love the community, we love the positivity”.

Adam Horowitz said “We love to hear from the fans. By the time you’re watching the premiere we’re already talking about the back half of the season..." he went on to say "What's great about it, is getting the sense of the fans and what they like, what they respond to, and what they’re invested in, and that’s really gratifying for us to see that passion." When the guys see the fans get upset, they know there is so much more that can happen with the character they want to say... "Be Patient!!" As a fan I can understand, sometimes when something happens to a favorite character it is hard to wait and be patient, but the love for the characters, this is what I my opinion makes the show so great.

How many more seasons do you think there will be for Once Upon a Time? According to Adam Horowitz, “there is no end date, but we have an end plan, we know how we would like to end the show when the time comes”. Edward Kitsis, joked and said "SPOILER!!!! "I’m thinking they all die.  The greatest twist we could do is a show about hope becomes the bleakest show ever."  These guys are such kidders. Of course they are all not going to die, but hey you never know how they will end the show one day?? Be sure to stay tuned tonight for Once Upon a Time, "The Savior"  season six premiere, tonight Sunday September 25 8:00/9:00 p.m. EDT.
